Hi just found this. Think I may have an egg bound hen. Found her sitting in yellow mess this morning
Hello and welcome to BYC. I'm not sure if you tried to attach a photo or not, but either way, I'd suggest that you post on the ER forum - https://www.backyardchickens.com/forums/threads/add/forumId/10. Whilst awaiting responses from the experts there, you may wish to type "egg binding" in the search box as there will be many threads and possibly articles on the topic.
All the best
Greetings from Kansas, ChickKen, and ! Pleased you joined our flock but sorry about your hen. Looks like you received a good link above - hope the ER folks are able to help you out. Here's another link as well: https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/egg-binding-symptoms-treatment-and-prevention
Best wishes - hope she's okay!
You've been given some good links to check out so I'll just say hello and send best wishes your way!
Did any shell come out also? If she retained shell, it would be good to post on the Emergency thread .
G’Day from down under ChickKen Welcome!
As you have already received some good advice and links, I will just wish you and your hen all the best.
I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends
